Soul Vaccination


This 10-piece Band infuses the Stage with a generous serving of gourmet ear candy and includes members who've played with such luminaries as the Temptations, Curtis Salgado, Linda Hornbuckle Band, the Oregon Symphony, Duffy Bishop and Nu Shooz.


Hottest Funk Band in the PNW
This stuff is not just soul - it's soul with urban sophistication and power of a group of players with a wide range of professional credits in rhythm and blues, jazz, film, television, theater, classical music and gospel.

Recent appearances include:
Jimmy Maks 1-4-08 post new years soul party. The 2007 Washington Park Summer Festival, Smokin' at the Ocean 2007 at Chinook Winds Casino, Special Olympics Oregon Summer Games Closing Ceremonies 2007, Good In The Hood 2007, Jimmy Maks 2007.
In 2006 Soul Vaccination sold out New Years Eve at Chinook Winds Casino , played the Museum After Hours Concert Series, the Portland Bite Festival, and has graced the stages of many other regional venues. But, for fun and profit the band continues to also play regular weekly shows at the hottest nightclubs in the Portland metro area.
Expect the best soul/funk/jazz/R&B from this group. The repertoire includes the likes of Earth Wind & Fire, Rufus, Chaka Khan, Tower of Power, Stevie Wonder, Aretha and more. And expect a party - that's what you'll get with sizzling Soul Vaccination's sparkling vocals, airtight rhythm section and powerful horn driven delivery. It will Shake you.

We are all dedicated to keeping this wonderful music alive.
We are Ambassadors of Soul.
